I am trying to make some modifications to the general layout of the Flex Viewer. As part of these modifications, I am trying to remove the Header altogether.

I removed the HeaderControllerWidget from the config.xml - thinking the map should now occupy the entire browser. But now I just get empty white space where the HeaderController was, leading me to believe some UI component must be defined elsewhere to hold the HeaderController widget.

I have searched through the code trying to find this component with no luck. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can remove Header altogether? I want the map to occupy the entire browser.

Finally figured this one out. The map node in the config.xml has a 'top' attribute. By default, it is set at 70. Changed it to 0, and now the map fills the whole browser.
